Story of you and I

Our story begins

Our story begins on a warm
summer night with just you
and I under the light of all the
stars above and the glow of the
moonlight looking down upon
us from a clear midnight sky,
while we are busy holding on
to each other while wrapped in
nothing at all but our hopes and
  dreams that we both share
along with everything and the 
taste of each other's lips left
over still from our first kiss while
  we make love for hours then fall
  asleep in the other's arms then
wake up to the rising sun starting
  all over again until the shine of 
early morning light from the
  beauty of a Texas sunrise when 
we start to plan our lives together
   while staring deeply into each
   others eyes where it felt as if
   time itself begins to speed up
  and begin to fly as many years
  just went on by as our story of
  you and I continued filling all of those
  pages with so much laughter
  and even tears telling of sickness
   and fears along with memories
    of our children that seemed to
have grown up so fast with
glasses and braces skinned
knees and dresses for their
first dance than before we knew
it was graduation time as
some went off to college and
others of to war thanking God
for bringing them back home
alive then marriages with some
that last and now grandchildren
running around that are a blast
and here we are today sitting
outside our home on the front
porch swing talking about all
that we have done holding hands
  on the very spot where
it all first began, where we still
can taste each other on our lips
from the night of our first kiss
as a smile and look deeply into
each other's eyes right here
where it started under the
pale moonlight as the story
comes to the end of you and I.
